Until about 1970, the clock operator at Buddy Bufford Field was situated on a metal platform above the home bench, on one of the light poles that stood between the field and the bleachers. The announced was on the top row of the stands. The "white" press box improved both those situations.
Alex Willingham was the first Red Devil named as an All-State player.
